How to make friends on the Fourth of July

Thanks, Chris, for this video find.

Friday Funnies For the Fourth

Another collection of utterly brainless fun. Internet TV has shriveled my brain.

Borat trailer. Sacha Baron Cohen, famous for Ali G, in his new role as a hilarious Kazakhstani TV personality.
Angry British Telecom customer. “And I mean PHYSICALLY!” This guy must be related to Winnebago man.
Unintentionally suggestive cartoon on a gameshow.
“Monkey Gland Sauce”. From the excellent Kooky Chow collection of bizarre foods. Among its features is our old favorite, pork brains in milk gravy.
A terrifying message from Al Gore. And for some reason in the YouTube comments there is a debate about homosexuality, relgion, and science. Like millions of other social web sites. Wisdom of the masses indeed.
Comcast technician sleeps on customers couch. Customer service!
The Colbert Report – Gravitas match with Stone Phillips. Watch as esteemed journalists battle.
The Colbert Report – Gravitas rematch with Stone Phillips. Colbert attempts to reclaim his Gravitas crown.
Blooper: Man breaks precious item on TV. See? Playing with it CAN break it.
Pee and Poo toys. Made from cuddly polyester, and… well… who knows.
Evil Japanese prank show – Toilet from hell. This is what happens when you combine public toilets and elevators.
Evil Japanese prank show – Spa from hell. I suppose liability lawsuits are an American invention.
Cell phone striptease. Much better than a lousy textmessage.
Transformers teaser trailer. Yes, the live-action Transformers movie by Michael Bay. The 80s will live forever! The teaser doesn’t show much – the movie isn’t going to be out until some time next year.

Friday funnies

Since I am lazy and unoriginal, I will regurgitate some funny and interesting things I’ve come across recently –

Bush insults a blind reporter
Connie Chung’s career suicide musical send-off
Classic video games re-animated with everyday items
I Feel Great (Nutri-Grain commercial) Ooongfph!
Amazing two-guitar performance of Super Mario Brothers theme music
Folgers Happy Morning commercial (brings to mind vague images of the Oompa Loompas in psychedelica)
Rollin’ with Bob Saget (“I got a trigger finger itchier than chicken pox”)
William Shatner vs. George Lucas (Star Trek and Star Wars fans may find this video of Shatner singing to Lucas amusing)
Hilarious “brush up on your English” commercial
Reporter vs. Snake (it’s old but still hilarious)
Amazing Wushu broadsword performance

And for you software techies out there, The Daily WTF is one of my new favorite feeds. Great anecdotes showcasing instances when software development goes ever so terribly but amusingly wrong. This collection of funny dialog boxes is a great intro to the site.

Another fun finding this week was Sternest Meanings, a web- and instant-messager-based anagram generator that produces consistently good results. Some funny examples:

  • Leonardo Dicaprio: Periodic anal odor.
  • Osama Bin Laden: A damn alien S.O.B.
  • Condoleezza Rice: Crazed ozone lice.
  • Fatboy Slim: My fat boils.
  • Angelina Jolie: I join anal glee.
  • Kevin Federline: Fiend-like nerve.
  • War on Terrorism: Warrior monster.
  • Leonardo Da Vinci: Vindaloo and rice.

From Clint:

  • George Bush: O, he buggers!
  • George W. Bush: He grew bogus.
  • Donald Rumsfeld: Muddler of lands.
  • Saddam Hussein: UN’s said he’s mad.
  • Ann Coulter: Unclean rot.
  • Colin Powell: Low, nice poll.
  • Taliban: Bit anal?

Reminds me of the good ol’ days when Jerry and I would sit in class creating our own anagrams and palindromes by hand. That’s just how cool we were!

Some funnies

Quick and simple post with some hilarious video findings –

Local News Blooper of the Year
Aspiring anchors, take note.

Zero Job Satisfaction
(Warning: copious amounts of swearing. Perhaps brought on by lack of good psychiatric medicines. Or lack of good career counseling sessions.)

Long-Lost Deleted Scene From Star Wars
(hilarious bit from Robot Chicken, which in season 2 has rekindled the love). Warning: Only likely to be funny if you have any kind of familiarity with Star Wars. And on a related note, here’s Neverending Party, a Robot Chicken spoof of The Neverending Story.

All thumbs

Funniest movie review I’ve read in a long while came from William Gibson‘s blog today:

Just back from V FOR VENDETTA. More thumbs up than a Chernobyl pianist. Superb. Splendid. Heartening. Go see.

Works for me; I’m there, dude!
